Tire Models 101
Join us as we discuss the types of tire models, their benefits, costs, and testing requirements.
Presented and moderated by:
Dr. James F. Cuttino, Director, Tire Technology and Product Line, Link Engineering
Mr. Michael Stackpole, President, Stackpole Engineering Services
Instrumented Vehicle Tests
If you run vehicle tests for validating friction material performance or instrument your vehicle tests to gather data, we invite you to join this session. We will discuss LINK’s instrumented vehicle tests and how to evaluate the data objectively. This presentation was held in Spanish.
Si realiza pruebas de vehículos para validar el rendimiento del material de fricción o instrumenta las pruebas de su vehículo para recopilar datos, lo invitamos a unirse a esta sesión. Discutiremos las pruebas de vehículos instrumentados de LINK y cómo evaluar los datos de manera objetiva. Esta presentación se realizará en español.
This session will provide an overview of LINK Compressibility Testing. We will cover how much friction material deforms when the driver uses the brake, and if the deformity can contribute to pedal feel. LINK can easily measure the compressibility of the brake lining, and the test is commonly used both during the development of material and for quality control. This presentation was held in Spanish.
Cuánto se deformará un material de fricción cuando el conductor presione el pedal de freno? Contribuirá la deformación a percibir un frenado esponjoso? La compresibilidad de un material de fricción puede medirse fácilmente, la prueba se usa como control de calidad y también durante el desarrollo. Participe en la sesión donde hablaremos acerca de las pruebas de compresibilidad.
Tescor ECU Operations Overview and Touchscreen
This course will give the owner/operators of a Tescor ECU-2/3 a general overview of the maintenance, mechanics, refrigeration circuit, air flow and touchscreen. The course will touch on the basics of operating and troubleshooting the machine without the need of a refrigeration license or pressure gauges. We will review the basic refrigeration cycle of this machine, air flow pattern and the theory of the duel cooling coil air path, user interface located within the Allen Bradley PanelView touchscreen including the password protected PID objects, and general maintenance requirements.
Krauss Friction Testing
This webinar will cover the Krauss friction test – a useful resource for Quality Control and Development – which characterizes friction and wear using a full-size pad according to ECE R90. Learn about how to use this test and the LINK equipment that runs it. This presentation was held in Spanish.
Acompáñenos en este webinar donde hablaremos acerca de la prueba de fricción Krauss, una forma útil para Control de Calidad y Desarrollo para caracterizar la fricción y el desgaste usando piezas completas acorde a ECE R90. Aprenda acerca de este ensayo y del equipo LINK donde se ejecuta.
LINK Brake Emission Technology and the Industry Update
This session will discuss one of the hot topics of pollution monitoring agencies and industry stakeholders – automotive brake emissions. Emissions generated from vehicle braking is foreseen to remain an active topic of interest while the industry is gradually steering towards battery-operated vehicles equipped with regenerative braking systems. We will use the LINK M6330 brake emissions measurement system to review several important aspects while measuring brake emissions in a laboratory setting. We will cover the ABCs of brake emissions, namely airflow, brake enclosure, capture zones, and design recommendations. The LINK M6330 is ISO 17025 certified and is built upon several industry standards such as ISO 9096, EPA Method 1A, and 40 CFR 1065 along with complying several essential recommendations from PMP.
LINK Chase Testing Webinar
This presentation will discuss LINK’s chase testing machine, the purpose of the SAE J661 test, and why it’s useful. Also discussed will be additional tests that can be conducted and how a chase machine can be utilized for much more than J661 testing. This presentation was recorded in English with Spanish support.
City Traffic Tests on a Dynamometer
Webminar Pruebas de trafico de ciudad en dinamómetro
This session will discuss the most commonly used dynamometer tests for disc brake pads, including the U.S. City Traffic (USCT) test. The USCT test provides results concerning two key aspects: durability and noise. This presentation was held in Spanish.
En esta sesión hablaremos acerca de las pruebas dinamométricas más comunes para pastillas y balatas, especialmente acerca de la prueba que simula tráfico en ciudad y que produce información de ruido y durabilidad.
LINK M-3500 Servo-Controller Webinar
The M-3500 Controller provides a solution that is focused on structural testing of mechanical components and systems. This integrated package includes function generation, simple and advanced control algorithms, transducer conditioning, and data acquisition.
